Challenge

Poverty can lead mothers to abandon their babies. Parental rights are removed as alcohol or drugs bring neglect for the children. When babies and young children need hospital care their mothers stay with them - but when you have no mother you have no one to care for you, or ensure that your clothes, nappies and medicines are not taken by others. With increasing numbers being abandoned, your support can allow a nurse in Kamianske to be "mothers" and guardians.

Solution

Abandoned babies will receive love and protection whilst in hospital. With city finances being inadequate provision of food, clothing and hygiene products will also be provided - who else will care for these forgotten little lives? When abandoned babies receive little love and affection in the Baby Home. Our 2 dedicated staff give up to 20 babies all the care they need.

Long-Term Impact

Protection and love brings immediate care and gives hope of better future prospects for the abandoned. Our work extends to seeking to reunite the baby, once healthy, with their parents. Giving a family a new start can truly transform lives.
